First let me say what a great, friendly and helpfull site this is - everything I ever wanted to know about GPS navigation has been answered here.

However, I've noticed that hyperlinks are very difficult to spot on this forum due to them neither being underlined nor a different colour to ordinairy text. I've often seen David having to explain that links are the "smaller text". So I was just wondering why the CSS for the forum hasn't been changed to make links stand out more? It should be straightforward, no?

It should be - but unfortunately it isn't. I've raised this in the past to be told that some of the style sheets are used not just for the forums but for the main pages as well, so a tweak that improves things in the forums could break the formatting of the reviews. My understanding is that Dave intends to get the forums onto their own CSS setup them at some point, but for now we have to put up with the way things are

There's one or two other 'legacy' issues around. Unfortunately all the Team have lots to be doing - like real life and jobs as well as Pocket GPS World.

Dave,

I understand what you are saying entirely, but actually it's very simple to make links in posts a different style without effecting anything else that uses the same stylesheet. Trust me on this as I work as a web-developer for a living. I've just done a little experiment and tested this works. All you need to do is the following:

Edit the existing stylesheet which is:

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/themes/pocketgps/style/style.css

at the bottom of that stylesheet add (for example) the following lines:

Code:

.postbody a
{
   color:blue;
   text-decoration:underline !important;
   font-size:1em;
}


This will make all links in posts (but nowhere else) blue, underlined and in a normal sized font (ie. same as rest of text in post). It won't effect the formatting of hyperlinks in reviews or anywhere else (this is because of inheritance of CSS since all posts are enclosed with a span tag with class postbody). You can, of course, put whatever styles you want in the section.

Hope that helps Smile

Diplo,

Thanks for the info. It was one of those many things we had been meaning to get round to doing. I have now made some mods to the stylesheet, so you should all see an improvement.

No problem, Mike. If you ever need any help in the HTML/CSS or PHP/MySQL department, just give me a shout. This site has been very helpful to me so if I can give anything back then I will Smile
